vacation week

Monday, April 1, 2013

I’m on hiatus this week. On a 6-day, slightly early, 15th anniversary celebration vacation with my husband. We’re not visiting family. What? Even typing that out seems strange. Our days aren’t mapped out by a conference schedule. In fact, we literally have two things pre-planned for the whole week. One dinner reservation and one scheduled tour. It’s kind of freaking me out a bit since we’ve never had this kind of free time to ourselves.

This week, I’ll repost a couple of pieces from the archives. In the meantime, pray for us, me in particular, since I’m a bit anxious about the whole trip. I hate leaving the children. I’m stressed about how they’ll do and how much burden it’ll be on my parents and how I’ll do without them. I’m worried that I won’t have a fun time, that something will happen and I’ll get sick or hurt or won’t be able to enjoy anything. I kind of, sort of don’t want to go at all.

But that’s my homebody, anxious mama-self talking, and I refuse to listen to her seriously.

It’s gonna be fun and relaxing, and I’m going to enjoy it.

I’m going to take a shower uninterrupted!
I’m going to sleep as late as I want (so probably 7:45).
I’m going to eat at fun adult restaurants that don’t serve tacos in a Dorito shell.
I’m going to hold hands with my husband, give thanks for the past 15 years, and talk about our goals and dreams for the future…..maybe you should pray that I want to come back at the end of the week.
